Here's how I hit up the MBC.
1. Run all day. Barely make it back to the truck. Drive to town.
2. Try to remember a clean shirt and splash the salt off my face in a stream.
3. A 1/2 lb KO'd Burger medium rare, fries and a pint while sitting on their rooftop patio deck overlooking Payette Lake and pink alpenglow on the Crestline.
4. Recovery is accomplished. Ready to train again tomorrow. Look at some mountains and get psyched for another adventure.
|The line up. Minimalist Bane IPA is my standard. Devious Intent Imperial Stout if I'm feeling stout. Lemon Ginger Hef for refreshment. Mackinaw Red for malty sweet and balanced. They often have several more beers on tap in the restaurant. They are bottling and selling beers around Idaho now. Delicious...All of them.|
